I mentioned before that women who do not want to have children can have hysterectomies.

(1) yes, vasectomy is an option, IF you don't want any (more) children ... not a good option for those who just want to delay childbearing.


(2) even vasectomies are NOT 100% effective.

They most certainly can and I for one whole heartedly encourage it.

DH and I have a deal that if I have a section knowing it is our last I get fixed. If we decide at any other point we are done he gets fixed.

I agree they are less invasive, however, like all birth control methods short of a woman having *all* of her reproductive organs removed, *no* contraceptive is 100% effective.

You mean for permanent birth control? Sure. The mirena works better but nothing is 100%. I know a couple V babies.


It is less risky and that is our plan after the mirena comes out and a couple prayers up above. Or I may just keep the mirena since I like not having periods, who knows yet. I have some time.

In our case we can't afford it. DH doesn't have health insurance because we can't afford to get him any and the only reason I have health insurance is because my parents pay for it. If they didn't pay for it I probably won't have any either.

There is no way we could afford to out of pocket cost for it either.

For me, it's for two reasons:


1.) I am not married.

In my case, the only way I can become pregnant is via rape or by sperm donation.

I learned about a procedure called Essure on the Child Free by Choice message boards. It seems kind of weird and its a newer procedure but it is permanent BC. and no surgery is required. They have a link to the website on their message board but i think it was just Essure.com
